My Hounder was pretty dry and crusty when it came out of the box, and the cones were just a bit too tight. I took off the freewheel and oiled it with Phil Wood, and then put lots of grease under the seals. Did the same with headset, pedals, seat post, braze on screws and brake cables/housing. Still working great after a couple years.
